not related to Robinson helis but can you put floats on a seahawk??? :blink: I've always wondered what happens when the engine quits on a jayhawk/seahawk? Do they float like the sea king or dolphin?

Our Sea Hawks (H and F models) had floats.  The Sea King had a boat hull (and floats). . . big difference.

Drive train failure. Still wondering if the floats were manually triggered or a result of the accident. Somebody is going to need a new fence. Glad all are (mostly) ok.

Wow, into an urban area and the helicopter still looks that good.  That sounds like a job well done to me.
